Flying from Paris to Barcelona is usually the quickest way to reach the Catalonian capital from Paris. Flights depart from both major Parisian airports – Charles de Gaulle in the north east of the city, and Orly to the south, and land at El Prat airport, to the southeast of Barcelona city center. A fairly select number of airlines operate direct services, but one-stop and two-stop flights are widely available, with changeover options in a range of European cities.
Flag carriers Iberia and Air France operate direct flights from Paris to Barcelona, as do Vueling and Air Europa. EasyJet also offer daily flights from Charles de Gaulle. Indirect flights are on offer from a wide range of carriers, including Lufthansa (for stopovers in Frankfurt), Swiss (for stopovers in Geneva) and Iberia (for stopovers across Spain).
The flight time for this route ranges from around 1 hour 35 to 1 hour 55 minutes. Direct easyJet flights generally make the journey in around 1 hour 45 minutes. Indirect flights can, of course, take much longer, but the quickest one-stop journeys can take as little as 3 hours 15 minutes, and generally require a changeover in Switzerland.
Travelers can expect around 40 direct flights per day during summer, generally falling slightly in winter. EasyJet provides up to 3 daily direct flights to El Prat from Charles de Gaulle. In the summer, upwards of 50 indirect flights under 5 hours are usually available. Even during quiet Winter periods, travelers can expect around 30 indirect options.
Departure airports: Paris: The two main departure airports for this route are Charles de Gaulle Airport, France’s busiest, and Orly Airport. They are both connected to the center of Paris via the RER B regional train line, which is accessible at Charles de Gaulle at terminals 1 and 2, and at Orly via a shuttle service to ‘Anthony’ station. There are also a range of bus services to the city center, and, from Orly, a tram service. The number 7 line can take passengers northwards, from where they can join the central Paris metro system. Both airports offer a range of facilities, from cell phone charging booths to lounges, duty-free shopping and restaurant options.
Arrival airport: Barcelona: Barcelona El Prat airport, Spain’s second-busiest, is well-connected to the city center. Express buses run from both terminals (and are named for them – T1 and T2) and terminate at the Plaza Catalunya in the center of town every 5-20 minutes. Alternatively, travelers from terminal 2 can take a train from the airport station, located at the terminal, directly to Barcelona Sants, the city’s main station. The airport is also reachable via the Metro system (L9). Barcelona El Prat offers a wide range of services, from on-site hotels to luggage storage options, cell-phone charging booths and free Wi-Fi facilities.
